Toucan Of My Afftection Card.

Hello.

Today is an exciting day for Time For Tea Designs as it is new release day. I am sharing a shaker card featuring the new clear stamp set Toucan Do This available now.

I started the card by ink blending a card panel to fit my card base with Distress Oxide inks Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. I flicked some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from a paintbrush to add some sparkle and set this aside to dry. Once dry I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Next I stamped the images using the Memento ink I selected the birds, tree branch, hearts and leaves on to some Neenah 80lb cardstock and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then cut them out with my scan n cut machine.

I used a circle die to cut out a window from the green panel and adhered some acetate on the back of the panel with a tape runner. I then adhered the images around the window with my tape runner.

To make the shaker element I placed 3 layers of foam tape around the window and around the edges of the card panel. I used an anti static powder tool around the window area then filled it with sequins. I used the Mardi Gras Parade mix from Doodles Paper Playground.

I then released the foam tape and adhered a card base to the panel to complete the card.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

Mermazing Birthday Card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs. I used some of the clear stamps from the Mermazing release. Available exclusively from Create and Craft

I decided to use watercolours for this card. I started by taking a piece of watercolour card. This is Arches cold press. I took my largest Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and drew with pencil around the outside to give me the shape and area of the panel to watercolour. Next I stanped the images using Versafine black ink.

Once the ink was completely dry I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to colour the images and the background.

Once the panel was dry I placed the circle die over the top and run it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.

Next I took a 6″x 6″ card base and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. To complete the card I adhered the watercolour panel using double sided tape and added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Take care for now.

Mermaid hello card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set called Swimming by to say Hi from Time For Tea Designs.

To make the card I started by stamping the cute mermaid image from the stamp set on to some Xpress it blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I them coloured the image using my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die and ran it through my big shot die cutting machine.

Next I used a piece of white cardstock and selected three colours of Distress Oxide inks, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Salty Ocean to blend the background. Once I had done this I used a distress sprayer to spritz some water on to the blended panel and soaked up the excess water with a piece of paper towel. I then took some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from the starry colors collection, mixed it with some water and flicked it over my background with a paint brush. This added some nice shine.

I then adhered my mermaid to the centre of the card using a tape runner before stamping my sentiments. I took the ‘swimming by’ and ‘to say’ sentiments and stamped them above the mermaid then stamped the ‘Hi’ sentiment below her. I also stamped some fish in the background using Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke.

To complete the card I added a few sequins.

The swimming by to say hi stamp set is available to purchase exclusively on Create and Craft TV, follow the link below and take a look at the other cute clear stamp and die sets available. International delivery is available.

Unicorn Shaker Card

Hello.

It’s been a little while since I shared a shaker card but when I saw that Doodles Paper Playground were having a Birthday giveaway and contest I decided it was the perfect opportunity to share one to join in the fun #showmeyourshaker.

I immediately though of my cloud dies from Honey Bee stamps and some unicorns would be perfect for a shaker. This is how I made the card.

I started by cutting a card panel from Neenah 80lb to 4 and 1/4 by 5 and a 1/2 inches. I also cut 2 pieces of fun foam to the same size.

I placed 3 of the cloud dies from the Honey Bee Stamps set ‘Partly Cloudy’ on to my piece of card. Once I was happy with the placement I ran it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.

Next I used Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade to add some colour to the card panel. I then used a Distress sprayer to spritz the panel with water and used a price of kitchen towel to soak up any excess.

I stamped out some images from The My Favourite Things stanp set Magical Unicorns and coloured them using Copic markers. I used my Scan n Cut to them out.

I stamped a sentiment from the MFT set and I adhered the images to the panel.

Next I worked on the shaker element. I adhered the 2 pieces of fun foam together. I then lined up the clouds from the front panel and cut 3 sections out of the fun foam that were slightly larger than the clouds.

I took a piece of acetate and adhered it to the back of the front card panel and adhered the fun foam panel on top of the acetate. Once the glue was dry I filled each of the cloud holes with sequins.

I took a card base and used the Distress inks to blend ink where the clouds would sit. Once this was day I brushed over the area with an anti static powder tool.

To complete the card I adhered the card base on top of the fun foam.

Monochrome Card

Hello. I hope you are well. It is still very hot here. The past couple of days have been exceptionally hot.

Today I am sharing the monochrome card I made.

This morning I watched a YouTube video by one of my biggest inspirations Kristina Werner. This week is watercolour week over on her channel. Take a look at her videos.

Todays video was a one colour challenge. Kristina used one watercolour colour to make a card. She suggested during her video it would be fun to use a dark colour to do a card and I fell in love with the idea and had to give it a try.

To start I selected a dark but not quite black colour from my Gansai Tambi watercolour set. I used watercolour paper to do a wash background and added a darker section at the bottom for the ground. It took a few layers for me to be happy and it looks quite messy at this point but I was happy with the final result.

I am really keen to practice watercolour techniques more.

Next I selected the ‘upon a star’ stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped the animals on to watercolour paper and painted them with the same watercolour paint as the background.

Once complete I cut them out with my scan n cut machine and put them to one side.

Once my background was dry I used a powder tool over the sky area and stamped the sentiment with a clear embossing pad then sprinkled with Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder and heated it with my heat tool. I then repeated this with the stars and used Ranger white embossing powder.

I then attached the animals and stars using small foam squares to add some dimension and complete the card.

I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Dinosaur card

Hello friends. I hope you are enjoying the summer so far.

Today I am sharing the dino card I made this morning.

I started the card by die cutting 6 square frames from white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn die set called selfie frames.

I then took a white square card base and marked out where I wanted the frames to go. Once I had done that I masked the edges with post it notes and used distress oxide inks to blend the three square backgrounds.

The background blends are Distress Oxide salty ocean with twisted citron, squeezed lemonade with carved pumpkin, picked raspberry with candied apple.

Once the background squares were blended I layed down three frames and attached them with liquid adhiesive and then repeated again with another frame on top of each to give the frames some depth.

Next I used Copic markers to colour three dinosaurs to match the backgrounds, then die cut them and attached one to the centre of each frame and added a rwar speech bubble.

I stamped a sentiment on each frame using Lawn Fawn inks to match the colours in the frames.

To complete the card I added some small gems and some twine with a bow. I hope you like it.
